Pre-election Guidance


08 Mar: Scottish Parliamentary Elections: Guidance for Council Employees and Elected Members

The Scottish Parliamentary Elections will take place on Thursday 6 May 2021 from 7am – 10pm, with verification and counting of votes taking place on Friday 7 May 2021. 

All Council employees have a duty to ensure that they act in an impartial and non-political manner during their day to day duties.  This will be particularly important during the pre-election period, and running up to the day of the poll, when political sensitivities may be heightened.
